I remember like 8 years ago when I used to watch Amr Khaled on TV, the audience was nearly all women, this really intrigued me!
Also like 5 years ago I used to Go to Mustafa Hosny Lectures in Al Hosary mosque and also Al saqia, I didn’t go a lot but whenever I went, like 80% to 90% of the people were women !!
This happened also when I went to Moez Masoud lectures in Al Saqia, 90% women.
Even now all religious shows target women, all those who call the show from phone are women, all questions sent online are women :D
I thought this is something related to Egyptian women only but I started to ask myself this question “Are women more spiritual than men”..I searched online and I was shocked from the statistics!
This is not limited to Egypt..it’a a worldwide phenomenon! The number of people who go the Church are mostly women, mostly those who buy books about knowing yourself are women and those who attend talks about self improvement are also mostly women! and this ratio is the same also for children and youth.
So are women innately more spiritual than men? or is there something else, I searched and found the following.
Men have few defined roles, Women have lots of undefined roles..let me explain.
Men have only two clear defined roles in their life and that is to Provide and Protect. Men’s roles are constant, more defined in society from the beginning. Men feel they know why they are. They know what’s expected of them, what they’ll need to do in life to “make it”.
Women on the other side have a fluctuating nature because of their different roles and and responsibilities, they are constantly self-monitoring. Their attention is focused inward on their feelings, and the feelings of those around them. They experience and process life quite differently because they, literally, grow others within themselves through the act of childbirth. They maintain primary responsibility for the nurturing and education of the next generation.
As women mature, they question who they are. Their identities are always changing. They are single, then married; childless, then mothers; making choices between caregiving and working outside the home. Due to women’s changing roles, they are in a continuous state of change and growth, wondering and wandering from one stage to the next asking themselves, “Who am I now?”
